active candidates – vs – passive candidates

May 28th, 2009

What is the difference? An active candidate is currently seeking employment, while a passive candidate is not, they essentially are already currently employed, or simply testing the waters.

There has been a lot of buzz stating that “passive” candidates are far superior than “active” ones. Whether true or not, it may just have something to do with wanting something you can not have, and simply assuming that if one is already employed, than they “must be better” than the person that isn’t. It is assuming (at most times incorrectly), that this active candidate (or unemployed candidate), must be desperate, thus willing to say or do anything to obtain employment, even willing to take “any” job offered.

There are many advantages as well as disadvantages to both, and in the coming weeks we can discuss them both.

Power Jobs Direct is your free job posting board for power, energy and utility companies, municipalites and coops, fortune 500 electrical utilities and more.

We have found that the national job boards don’t always suit our clients needs, and the niche job boards often can be “too niche” or too small. We have since developed PowerJobsDirect, where you can now post all your open job listings from the electrical plant manager, to the architect and account, to the attorney for your legal department and “all”. Don’t go anywhere else!
